“You’re doing it right now, demonizing it, pointing out how guilty I should feel, how awful people who have skin like me and penises and heterosexual desire are.”

You really need to go back and re-read what I wrote. Read it several times. Say the words out loud as you read. Then think about it. You should be able to divine the true meaning of my comment: that historically most cultures have tolerated male sexual aggression. The problem is with the CULTURE, not the MALES. If I believed that the problem lay with males, then I would advocate selective elumbration.

Another suggestion: look up at the top of this comment. Do you see the little photograph next to my name? That’s a photograph of me. Note that I am mostly bald. What does that tell you about my gender? Do you think that I am condemning myself?

“Say ONE good thing about heterosexual male desire. Just one. I dare you.”

Sure: it’s a healthy part of our existence. It drives men to achieve great things. It is necessary to the procreation of the species. It’s a lot of fun. That’s FOUR things.

Go back and read my comment again. It condemns male sexual predation, not male sexual desire. If I condemn robbery, that doesn’t mean that I condemn the desire to own things.

I don’t know where you get these crazy ideas; they are certainly not the result of any knowledge of history, art, sociology, or psychology. I can only speculate that they must be the result of some emotional trauma you have suffered.
